(1) Attend at least 90% of all scheduled workouts. 

  • Optional workouts before school during holidays are excluded from the requirement.  These optional workouts may be used to make up absences.  Exceptions may be made by the coach for practices missed due to fall extra-curricular activities and extended illnesses or injury.  Written notice must be given to the coach ahead of time in order to approve of these missed practices.  If a swimmer or diver chooses to attend USS swimming or diving practices, then they are required to attend all the scheduled meetings and they must meet the same practice requirement as those attending the scheduled high school workout.

  • If you are going to miss a meet then you must give the head coach at least two weeks notice.  Swimmers and divers are not required to attend meets that they are not entered in although they are welcome to attend.  All team members must attend the County Meet and the State Meet (if they qualify).

a.    Qualify for the state meet.  Times from dual/tri meets will fulfill this requirement.
